Ghanaian actor-turned-politician, John Dumelo has urged Nigerians to mock the Black Stars in moderation following their elimination from the World Cup in the group stage.

The entrepreneur who, like many others, was disappointed that Ghana failed to make it to the second round of the competition said although the country exited the 2022 FIFA World Cup after losing to Uruguay, Nigeria did not have the opportunity to visit Qatar.

He added in his post on Facebook that he remains proud of the team.

“Dear Nigeria, it’s ok to laugh at us but remember you didn’t see a quarter of Qatar….I am proud of the Black stars!” Dumelo wrote on his Facebook page on Friday, December 2, 2022.

The Black Stars failed to capitalize on their victory against South Korea as they lost 2-0 to Uruguay in Group H on Friday, December 2.

Two quick goals from Girogian De Arrascaeta for Uruguay took the tie away from the Ghanaians.

Despite an improved performance in the 2nd half, Ghana couldn’t recover form their early setback and ultimately lost the game to end their tournament.
